I have used your "recipe" for years and thought I'd already rated. This is an excellent method for cleaning our clear, heavy duty shower curtain liners. As they are clear you could tell if there were any streaks left behind....and no, not one streak. Many thanks!

I have long washed the plastic shower curtains in the washer with 1 cup of vinegar, but after trying this, I will use your way. Your way doesn't leave any streaks and seems easier with the addition of the large bath towels. Just an excellent way to clean the curtain. We clean ours about once every three weeks. Thanks, AudreyM. P

I tried this a while ago and forgot to rate it. This worked really well! My plastic shower curtains looked bright white and nearly new. This is an awesome cleaning tip. Thanks!
